WIG: Ace of Spades Bottle Opener

by

I seldom need to use a bottle opener. Nonetheless, when I saw this product at flea market I knew I had to buy it. I do think it’s a bit cheesy but the design of the bottle opener really caught my eye. I’m not a big card game player either, however, the notion a bottle opener “disguised” as a card really stuck with me. I find objects that are derived from two totally different ones, or even hybrids of two different products, to be incredibly interesting. More than anything, this object is a knick knack or point of conversation. It actually doesn’t really work that well, but that doesn’t seem to matter so much. Although the supposed purpose of the object is highly utilitarian, the value I get from lies more in its visual appearance more than anything else.
